    Bike Bug LLC worked very hard at developing a Rear Wheel Rim and Spokes - That will not twist or break under the additional, constant torque developed by a bicycle engine. We went to the motorcycle industry and first thing we noticed was the rim had an internal upset section in the center. We were told this upset or bend in the steel meant those forces embedded in the steel would have to be overcame before the wheel would twist. The second were the spokes were heavy gauge steel and short - so we used as heavy a gauge spoke at an economical price and prototype several rim designs. We tested the designs on friction drive, chain drive and belt drive bicycle engine systems - thus started production of what we think is the safest motorized bicycle wheel on the market. The Engineering Principle of Steel that is bent must be overcome before it can bend differently - stops this rim from twisting. The heavier steel spokes prevents them from breaking. The indented spoke nuts into the rim upset also help protect the tube from puncture. Solid Steel Rim with 12 Gauge Spokes - Upset Reinforced Rim with spoke heads recessed includes rear brake arm and mounting bracket. 26" X 2.125" 12 Gauge 36H 1.4T that matches 26" 2,125" tire Spoke: 12 Gauge 257mm with steel nipple Rear Coaster Hub 3/8" 12 Gauge 36 H 110 W 140mm Free wheel 18T with flange nut. $40 each + shipping IMG_0042.jpg Rim 7.jpg IMG_0043.jpg IMG_0044.jpg

    Why, that's a sweet wheel for $40. That might be better than my 12 ga, 36 spoke from niagara cycle that cost about $50, if I remember right.

    What hub is on this wheel?

    Looks like that would be a tougher design for potholes and accidental curb abuse. That rolled edge looks good too.
